Houston’s favorite fighter is looking to win the UFC heavyweight title, or at least an interim one, in his hometown on August 7th. UFC 265 will go down in the Toyota Center that night, and Derrick Lewis will be facing off with Cyril Gane for the belt. It should have been Francis Ngannou defending the full title against The Black Beast, but money issues scuttled that.
In the co-main event, women’s # 1 P4P fighter Amanda Nunes will put up her bantamweight belt against Julianna Pena. The main card is full off other good fights as well, featuring a 135-pound contest between Jose Aldo and a welterweight scrap between Vicente Luque and Michael Chiesa.
